Matthew Stower


Postdoctoral Research Scientist

Matthew Stower studied at the University of Exeter (BSc, Biological Sciences) and the University of Bath (MRes, Regenerative Medicine) before moving to University College London for his PhD studies in Cell & Developmental Biology on the molecular events controlling neural induction, under the supervision of Professor Claudio Stern. In 2012 he started as a postdoctoral researcher at Oxford University in Dr Shankar Srinivas’ lab to work on the mechanisms driving the migration of anterior visceral endoderm cells in the early embryo.

Matthew’s current research interests include investigating fundamental cellular processes; specifically the cellular mechanisms controlling epithelial tissue morphogenesis, cytoskeletal-element regulation, cell polarity and fate.  He is also currently working on a collaborative project on Amniote evolution with Dr Federica Bertocchini at the University of Cantabria, Spain.
